Both Chicago airports are prepared for a busy week.  The Chicago Department of Aviation is ready to welcome around one-point-seven-million travelers to O’Hare and Midway Airports through next Monday for the historically busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  That figure is a more than six-percent higher than the same period last year.
